Documentation wiki
« on: January 11, 2014, 11:42:40 PM »
A new wiki page has been set up at the following link: http://docs.piboso.com/wiki/

The plan is to add manuals and documentation about all simulators and tools.

This is a good idea !
Who can add content on this wiki? Are you the only one?


I also started one to document (or try to) the different config files there http://gpbikes-mods.wikia.com
I can continue on yours if you want.


Could you describe how the front fork linkage?
Specially these parameters: steer_mass, steer_joint, front_upper, grip_leftpos, grip_rightpos, front_length, front_lower, fsusp_mass, fwheel
That would greatly help !!!

Due to wikis being an easy target for spammers, it is not possible to contribute.

Could you not add at least the moderator (HornetMaX, Ricco) to help you with the content?



And about the other questions?  :)

That's great news !

What would you suggest with respect to the ongoing effort on the GPB unofficial guide ?
Should we just stop working on it and wait for the wiki ?

The wiki manual is not going to be completed quickly, so an unofficial guide will be useful for a long time. Also it may be cover topics that should be left off the official manual.

OK, we'll keep working on it then.

Of course, if you notice any wrong/missing stuff (*), feel free to notify me/RiccoChicco.
Also, consider the guide as public, so if you need to take part of it, don't even ask, just take them.

A couple of questions:
  • In Settings, Input 2 tab: what is "Dash" for ?
  • In Settings, Misc tab: what is "Help" (On, Min, Off) for exactly ?

"Dash" changes the dashboard screen ( if there are multiple ones ).
"Help" changes on-track helpers:
Min: pitlane speed and session info ( except for sighting lap ) are not displayed
Off: it also hides the 2D pitboard, 3D and 2D start stall helpers, 2D starting lights, and sighting lap info

I tried something but it doesn't work  :(

Code: [Select]

font = gp12_gear_font.tga
fontstring = 0123456789N
posx = 142
posy = 170

speed
{
enable = 1
spacing = 24
font = gp12_speed_font.tga
fontstring = 0123456789
posx = 270
posy = 138
}
lastlap
{
enable = 1
spacing = 24
font = gp12_lastlaptime_font.tga
fontstring = 0123456789
posx = 270
posy = 194
spacing2 = 15
font2 = gp12_p.tga
fontstring2 = :.
}
}
screen1

Sorry, there is a bug, so at the moment it doesn't work.
It will be fixed in Beta5.
